Tofino and sharing crabs with bears


I had an amazing experience earlier this year in Tofino, in the wilds of Vancouver Island. I’m thrilled that Lonely Planet published the story.

First, we soothed our souls watching the waves at Pacific Sands Beach Resort. Then we went out on the water with Tofino Resort + Marina’s Adventure Centre to go bear watching and crabbing. Afterward, Canada’s Top Chef, Paul Moran at 1909 Kitchen, cooked up our crab into an incredible feast.

Here’s the story, with thanks to Lonely Planet: A wild epicurean adventure through Vancouver Island’s Tofino.

More of my Tofino writing is on the Canada page (scroll down to B.C.).

This adventure and my first trip to Tofino were thanks to a press trip from Tofino Tourism, Pacific Sands Beach Resort, and BC Ferries. As is my standard, no one other than me and my editor reviewed or approved my writing.

  1. I’m interested in your impressions of the Trans Canadian Highway?
    How do you find out about such pristine places like this?
